264. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if a report will be presented to the principal and board of management of a school (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6335/20]
The purpose of the site visit on the 12th August 2019 was to offer technical advice on the suitability of the school and site to incorporate SEN teaching in the immediate and long term, with the support of the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) and as a detailed inspection of all structures on the site was not carried out a written report was not prepared.
At the meeting the school authority was advised to submit an application for addition accommodation under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme and this application is currently being assessed to determine the school long-term accommodation needs. As soon as this assessment is completed the school authority will be informed and details of the new accommodation to be provided will be forwarded to the school authority for their consideration and approval.
